Windows Phone 8 Huawei Ascend W3 Leaked in Screenshot


The rumored Huawei Ascend W3 has been shown in leaked images, revealing a high-end Windows Phone 8-powered smartphone. Obtained by Chinese site WinP, the photos show a large-screened handset running Microsoft's just-released mobile platform.

According to details shown on the calendar app live tile, the Ascend W3 will feature a 4.5-inch screen, with a measurement of 132 x 67 x 10mm. The camera on the back is said to deliver an 8-megapixel resolution, as well as the ability to record 1080p video.

Several reports have pointed towards a budget based Ascend W1 device, but the Chinese manufacturer has yet to confirm the handset, nor comment on any other Windows Phone 8 devices it has in the pipeline. Speculation has suggested that Huawei is waiting until CES 2013 to announce its Windows Phone 8 devices, which takes place in January.

    From everything I have seen and heard about Huawei over the last 6 months they seem to basically copy HTC with design and specs. Now before we go off tangent with regards to patents and copyright issues I just want to know if anyone actually knows if their products are actually any good? What is the quality actually like?

    I owned an HTC Evo Shift for a while. It was a decent product at best, to be quite honest. The Sliding keyboard was wobbly from the get go, the screen was of decent quality (LCD), the touch screen was a bit finnicky. Then eventually the screen's backlight just decided to stop working about a year into my ownership. Oddly enough, I jumped into a pool with it one night by accident, and it still worked.. I soon after bought a Samsung Galaxy Nexus and never looked back. The quality is leaps and bounds over my HTC. I probably won't buy another HTC product ever again.
